it takes years of soul-crushing disappointment to be dead enough inside to elect someone like william o'brien. now, thankfully republican lawmakers in texas, georgia, indiana, wisconsin, kansas, tennessee and south carolina have all passed laws that require voters to show government-issued photo i.d. it makes sense, after all, you have to show a government-issued i.d. to buy liquor, and voting can also make you wake up in the morning and say, "what did i do" and then throw up in a trash can. >> it will make it harder to register to vote and vote. >> it's a poll tax. >> they're trying to keep poor people from votings, the minority from voting, the elderly from voting. we are not stupid. >> stephen: well, that's the difference between us, madam.
